m2ps -- converter from Mule code (*internal*) to PostScript
runs as a filter and converts a text encoded in Mule
internal code (called *internal*) to a PostScript program to
print it. To handle a text not coded in *internal*, you
have to convert the code to *internal* at first. You can
for the code conversion. You can also use
to do all the job (code conversion and PostScript generation).

.SH FONT SPECIFICATION
search for BDF files according to a pathlist (list of
comma-separeated directory) and filenames described in file
CHARSETS. Each line of this file contains information about
one character set. The line has 7 to 9 columns each
separated by ':'. The columns are: LEADING-CHAR, BYTES,
COLUMNS, TYPE, GRAPHIC, FINAL-CHAR, DIRECTION, DOCUMENT,
BDF-FILE, and ENCODING. By modifying this file, you can
specify different BDF files. You don't have to specify
ENCODING for 2-byte character sets such as Chinese,
Japanese, and Korean (as for Big5, you should specify 1 for
ETen and 2 for HKU).
